Senior Sales Strategy & Account Manager - DACH Market
Who are they?
Swan, a European fintech company, is the easiest way to embed banking features into your product. This can be called “Banking-as-a-Service” or “Embedded banking”. We built Swan so that anyone can start embedding banking features within just minutes of visiting our website. Swan is truly fast and easy to use.
Swan already has 100+ customers across 10+ European countries, large enterprise and startups alike. They include Carrefour, Factorial, Alma, Pennylane and Agicap. We’re on track to take things much, much further, by expanding on Europe — localizing our product, and internationalizing our team and partner portfolio.
Swan has received 58M€ funding from VCs like Lakestar, Accel, and Creandum. We’re a Mastercard principal member and a licensed financial institution, passported across Europe.
We have a hybrid remote-work policy, with 150+ Swanees across offices in Paris, Bordeaux, Berlin, Barcelona and Amsterdam! Wherever you’re coming from, come as you are! We’re open to all kinds of people, from all walks of life. If you’re excited about joining a European fintech adventure, Swan is the way!
Swan is looking for a Sales Strategy & AccountManager. Someone that will grow our business from the inside and help maximize the full potential of our platform and partners. We’re looking for a “general athlete” who is able to take over a role with two main dimensions:
Sales Strategy: In collaboration with other teams (Marketing, Product, Compliance), you will work on new offers meant to drive our revenue up. You will lead such projects for Swan, from the go-to-market analysis to the successful deployment with our customers. Besides, you will build new processes to ensure Swan keeps scaling as its customer base is growing.
Account Management: You’ll be in charge of managing and developing our existing portfolio of Swan’s customers across Europe (NB: we call them ‘partners’ at Swan). You will nurture relationships with them, help them market Swan’s offering, understand their priorities and roadmap to increase our penetration, upsell them new features, and launch new projects.
We’re looking for a strategic thinker with both an analytical profile and a strong business acumen, who is able to understand our partners’ markets and to define and lead strategic initiatives. Someone who considers that a sales strategy can’t be done without actively discussing with existing customers - on the contrary, it must be deeply rooted in a job with on-the-ground interactions with our customers, driving measurable impact. We need a curious person with an entrepreneurial mindset, willing to learn and comfortable with the technical aspects of our product. Lastly, we’re looking for a team player who will partner with our Marketing, Product and Compliance teams (among others) to lead strategic initiatives with support and alignment from the entire company.
This is a key role for us as you will be a direct contributor to our commercial success. Indeed as we sell our product through a B2B2X model, growing our existing business is paramount to reaching our commercial ambitions.
Based in Paris, you will have to travel occasionally to meet our partners across Europe.

It’s okay if you don’t tick all the boxes — don’t let imposter syndrome prevent you from applying! 🙌

Twice a year, we go somewhere gorgeous (a chateau, a mountain) where we reconnect, deep-dive into big topics, and relax.
This isn’t a perk, it should be the rule, but diversity and inclusion are important at Swan. We’re working hard to get better every day.
✨ Our values:
Be human: Be straightforward, transparent, and sincerely care. It’s all about integrity and doing the right thing.
Ambition: We’re in this for the long game. We want to transform the entire market, and be the engine for Europe’s next tech champions!
